    You get what you pay for is a phrase that definitely applies to Bloomsburg. It is a good school, but not great. There can definitely be improvements, but I think it is the best it can be for the money we are paying.

    For one of the cheapest schools in the area, Bloomsburg has a near unlimited selection on majors, minors, classes, clubs, and events.

    Absolutely. It's such great education system. I transferred from a school where I was paying over $40,000 more to get a mediocre education and here it's a lot cheaper and I get what my moneys worth and more. Also, with dining and such, it's not too expensive and it's worth whatever money you spend.

    As an out of state student from New Jersey, BU is still cheaper than most NJ state universities. Given the quality of education at bloomsburg, it's (mostly) modern facilities, and general college atmosphere I'm surprised at how inexpensive bloomsburg is.

    College is always expensive, but Bloom is a state school which makes it cheaper. Bloom does a great job of teaching their students and making sure they get hands on learning when necessary or helpful.
